Grow at Home

This group is for parents who want to raise their children to know Jesus.  My hope is that we can all work together to pray for and encourage each other through this process.  I have ordered the books that we will use and should have them soon.  It would be good if we could all get together every week, but I know that will not happen because of all of our busy schedules.  We will have to figure it out as we go.  Maybe once a month we can meet at someone’s house and share some of the struggles or successes as we go.  I’m posting this first video so that you can get a feel for the author and how this study will go.

November 15  – Wednesday Night Group

Matthew 5:17 – 48

We continue to work our way through this section of Scripture by reading the rest of chapter 5.  Again I suggest you read the entire passage and then slowly work through each little section (i.e. vv. 17 – 20 Jesus talks about fulfilling the law, 21 – 26 on murder…) and write your thoughts as you prayerfully study.

We talked about moving on to a book after we finish these 3 chapters of Matthew.  We will use The Good and Beautiful God by James Bryan Smith.  Let me ask people who went through this book a few years ago if they still have a copy.  I think that there are some copies of the book around the church building too.  I’m guessing this will begin after Christmas.  If you can’t wait to start reading it and want your on copy you can go to Amazon or CBD and purchase it.

Take this Spiritual Gifts Inventory this week.

A poem by Eva for our 125th anniversary.

Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.
Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God. – Psalm 90 1,2

O God, our Help in ages past,
Our Hope for years to come
Our Shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal Home!

We thank thee for thy faithfulness
Throughout these many years
For inspiration and for strength
Through laughter and through tears

For vision clear and courage strong
To seek and do Thy will
The presence of the Comforter
Who is abiding Still

Without that power, we would have failed
To follow as you lead
So fill us daily, Lord, we Pray,
For you are all we need.

The vision that our fathers had
Still calls to us today
May we be true to follow as
you lead us all the way

O God, our Help in ages past,
Our Hope for years to come,
Be Thou our Guide while life shall last,
And our eternal Home

Verse 1 and 6 from O God, Our Help in Ages Past, Sing to the Lord, 95
